But he is only doing it online. He has been posting anti Trump links on his Facebook and posting campaigns for people to sign and writing to senators about his concerns about Trump and our country. My husband has never been this scared so he has been having anxiety about it. He is even getting into discussions about it online on Facebook with the senators and with other people who are Trump supporters.
Also I read that the protesters say they will keep this up for the next four years as long as he in in office. He isn’t in office yet but they don’t want him to be in office.
My husband has never been involved in politics until now and since people say they will keep this up for fours years, this tells me this is definitely not a tantrum and the fact my husband has never done this before also tells me. People are scared for their country and for themselves. But seriously I bet if many people would have voted for a president Clinton might have won to keep Trump out. I voted for Clinton to try and keep out Trump. But if Bernie were still running, I would have voted for him. But some people voted for Trump for the same reason I voted, to keep Clinton out because of the email thing. It was never clear to me if she was sexually involved with a minor or if she even knew about it except for her server was used for it by a guy and his wife worked for Hilary. But the majority did not vote for either president. My niece didn’t either so she put down Sanders.
But my question for the protesters are if they are neither Trump or Clinton supporters, who are they expecting to be president? If Trump doesn’t get it after all, then it goes to Clinton or would it go to Mike Pence? Do they want either of these people in office?

Trump won and ever since then protests have broken out and some riots. Then last night it finally happened in my city. I get off work and I had to be escorted out because they had put chains on the doors and there was a huge crowd in the park. I saw smoke and heard shots and then people left the park and I noticed graffiti on buildings and people hitting cars with their hands and circling around them and I saw some people getting into a car. They even had to close the train stop and then I was hearing rumors the protest had broken into a riot and I was told it’s not protestors rioting, it’s just people using them to make trouble because they will be blended in the crowd. They are not even part of the protest. But the media is reporting it as some anti Trumpers are rioting than stupid kids using the protest to make trouble. I’m anti Trump but I am not out destroying property but I am disgusted how anyone can vote for this monster, sexist, racist, homophobic, xenophoibic and rapist guy. I honestly couldn’t careless what happens to Trump supporters but going around destroying property for no reason just makes it all look bad and undermines the protest.
I am feeling we have another Hitler and we had voted for this guy and my husband and mother think things will work out because we have survived the bad times before and things always worked out at the end. Plus I have no idea if our country will split up because Oregon is talking about it now and so is California. I heard they want to build a wall around their state and that reminds me of Berlin.
I did even see a trash can lid on the ground and I had to wait half hour for the train because they delayed the trains even though no one was blocking them. I came home and watched it on TV and saw some of it live and looked at the Tweets and I was happy to see some protesters trying to stop the rioters and arrests have been made. This all told me to stay away from downtown at night and evenings because your car might get busted and it made me glad the auto shop my car is at isn’t even close to downtown so my car is safe from the riots. My mom doesn’t even call this a riot because she has seen worse and she thinks they are just exaggerating by calling it a riot. Nothing is being burned down and it’s just minor stuff like graffiti and broken windows and firecrackers but car are being hit with bats and a few of them were totaled at the dealership.
But people are really scared and living in fear now because Trump won. Plus more racism has broken out after he won because people think him winning is a free pass to be a open racist now so non whites have been getting harassed now. One kid in Eugene got suspended for calling a kid a nigger.
But if Clinton had won, I am sure this same thing would have happened by Trump supporters. Plus there were people who voted for neither.
I am so ashamed to be an American but at least the protesting shows not all of us are racists, sexists, bigots, xenophobics, and homophobics. Honestly I wouldn’t care if our country broke up into different countries and if my state became their own country and California and Washington joined us. That reminds me of Russia and the Cold War. My husband thinks this is going to be a Civil War because he said that is how it started but I thought it started because of slavery and people wanted to end it.
I just hope this won’t turn into Germany and I hope Trump won’t invade other countries, let’s hope he isn’t that bad. I also hope we won’t go backwards in time and I hope our healthcare won’t go backwards.
